Adding StackOverflow question:
Regression is visible on the docs in the example 2 &3 from "Examples of various placeholder options" .
This has been fixed on master (latest code). See http://jquerymobile.com/test/docs/forms/selects/custom.html
I will check how it is has been fixed, make sure the fix is in the 1.1.2. maintenance release, and see if I can provide you with a temporary workaround.
The issue first occured when Gabriel picked commit fd959b9 into 1.1-stable that changes select.custom.js
The problem doesn't seem to be the changes made by that commit, but more the fact that 3 other commits were not picked into 1.1-stable.
Those 3 commits regard changes in the setButtonText function in select.js
Commit ccd160d is a merge of a PR. Commits 0ad7c1e and c48768a are commits made by John.
Can you guys look into the best way to fix this for 1.1.2.?
This seems to be okay again with latest: http://jsfiddle.net/MauriceG/fMwQS/
@phillpafford Can you confirm that?
Yes it is ok on master / latest, but not on branch 1.1-stable. So if we do a 1.1.2. release this still won't work.
I was having the same problem and using the master / latest fixed the problem, but it made the select menu display constantly at the bottom of my page and then not center when I did select it. More details at my Stack Overflow question.
correct id for select test fixture, Fixes #4696
Since 1.2.0, I've been having the same problem as Nemonocerater. Whenever the select menu is not dropped down, it is placed at the bottom of the page. Should a new issue thread be made about this?
Please open a new issue for the position problem if the problem still occurs when using latest code. See the contributing guidelines for our JS Bin and what information is required. Thanks!
